NO clue, but really want a girl, and planning on finding out the gender (I am someone with no patience and always want to know everything I can!)
TTC 4 months
I had 2 chemicals before this one stuck & I was so happy to get a true BFP that's getting darker every day, which never happened w/ chemicals because I lost it before implantation was successful. Very faint BFP on 8 DPO, true BFP in 9 DPO & hcg is higher every day! The only thing I did different was take B6 starting a month ago to lengthen my luteal phase- and it worked. But going to the doc's next week to check progesterone levels just in case.
parker! I love your name congrats on your pregnancy. I got my first bfp at 8DPO too.

Adrian was born 10/11 and weighed 8lbs 9.3 oz and was 19 3/4 inches long..My ob at the time told me my second would weigh more than my first by 2 or more lbs and each afterwards would weigh 2 or more lbs than the previous one based on my body type...I know there is NO way I'm going through a natural birth or VBAC if there is a possibility of a 10lb' baby......
So with a schedule c/section I figure I'll probably deliver 7 days earlier than actual due date...My conception and due dates have been pretty right on with each pregnancy too...With Adrian--original due date was 10/21 but after 2nd sono it was moved to 10/18--she came exactly 7 days early; With Wesley due was originally April 9th--date moved after sono to April 5th--he came on April 4th after going into labor on my own but via c/s...
Sorry to be so long winded but thought I'd share my background too...LOL...
hehe, yes, Id be sure to have a csection if I knew Id be pushing out a 10+ lber!! yikes! dont have any birthing plans yet. although I do know that Id probably want an epidural! im no superwoman
AFM, I had a spotting scare tonight.. Im upping my progesterone to 200mg.. Im praying it was just a bit of breakthrough bleeding, AF was due today.. please keep me in your prayers ladies
Holywoodmum- I only moved to Cyprus 4 months ago but we have both sets of parents here and we met and married here 6 years ago but it's still scary. Do you know people in Germany? Some of the army wife's here gave birth in Germany and say it's better than going private in the uk, hope that outs your mind at rest a bit xx
Floridagirl- I hope the spotting is nothing like you say and that everything is fine with your bean Hun, sending super sticky dust to you today
I plan on doing it au natural this time as they don't offer g&a here and I don't really want pethidine, apparently you stay in for 5 days and they come and take your babies for bath/bottle etc when you sleep so I an on staying awake for 5 days so they don't get the chance to give beanie a bottle as I plan to bf and wanna be the first person to bath my new baby!!
Ds was 9lb2oz and I had an episiostomy (sp?) so if it wasn't for that and I was in the uk I'd opt for a home water birth.
ditto stacy, due our 3rd on the 3rd!
congratulations parker and alex!
Waiting, I'm hoping for another vaginal delivery. Both my girls were 11 days late, C weighed 9lb 3oz, B was 11lb 0.5oz. Not sure what the germans are like for letting you go padt 40 weeks?
Chelle, we don't know anyone there! but i should have a good few months to figure out where I want to give birth...
Floridagirl, really hope it's just some harmless spotting...
As for me, lie in this morning, but world war 3 when i got up. Should be mediating, not on hete!
Well Back to work--I work in a daycare center that is part of a Baptist church--my class is the 18 month-36 months age...(basically toddlers and 2's..) I have 3 that will be 3 over the next 3 months...I have toliet trained them, watch learn their colors in english and spanish, shapes, even recognize their names! My baby birds will be flying onto the 3's and 4's class soon......LOL...
Anyhow--I hope everyone has a SUPER DAY!!
Florida--I pray that your spotting doesn't become anything serious! I had bleeding and spotting with my daughter--clots too!
Ladies--Thanks for the replies to my "delivery" question--it's quite interesting to read other's birth experiences or how they "plan" for it to go...It's been 11 years since I gave birth in any form or fashion so almost like being pg again for the first time...It was a pleasant reminder at 4:25 *the time I have woke up the last 3 days* to goto the bathroom..And the nausea I feel this am as I really think today is the start of my week 4 (as today is when my AF was due again) but I'm not changing my ticker-what's one day?....LOL....
So love, hugs, and prayers to all!!! Congrats to any "new" September mommas!!! **Like my cycle buddy Amanda--we should see soon how her hpts are progressing!**
I've had a bit more blood this morning.. I can only see it on the tp if I push up, but it's definitely there. It was accompanied by AF type cramping, but haven't had any cramps for about an hour now.. Got my first beta & progesterone draw this morning.. Will hopefully find out the results later today & then 2nd beta is Thursday morning..
